Date Version Changes May, 3. We have other engineers who tend to work on designs with embedded processors. The descriptor controller can also be external to the DMA module. On your Linux computer: Another factor that affects throughput is the read request size.

Which unfortunately I don’t have any suggestions, other than find an existing driver and copy it with any relevant changes. The Windows software package includes a document with instructions on how to run the application. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy.

PCI Express DMA Reference Design Using External Memory

Normally if a board is designed to run linux, they’ll have some sort of kernel repository, and documentation. In the directory that you created, login as root by typing su.

Set the number of dwords per descriptor. The second figure shows the requester making multiple outstanding read requests to eliminate the delay after the first data returns. I wonder if you can glean some code from it.


In the terminal window of computer 1, change to the directory in which you installed the Linux driver. Flow control guarantees that a TLP is not transmitted unless the receiver has enough buffer space to accept it.

Software writes all descriptors into the descriptor table in the system memory. It has higher throughput. Just find any PCIe driver that does roughly what you want, and google for any function calls, starting with the init function, and then the probe function.

The device in question is a software controlled switch-like product that uses a processor for certain tasks. Also, thanks for telling me about UIO Drivers. Address width of accessible PCIe memory space. There are separate credits for headers and payload data.

Enable or disable read DMA. Enable or disable write DMA. Software also reads the data back to verify correct ocie. The read throughput depends on the delay between the time when the Application Layer issues a Memory Read Request and the time the completer takes to return data. The test passes when there is alterw data mismatch.

Getting the Best Performance with Xilinx’s DMA for PCI Express

Software allocates free memory space in the system memory to populate the descriptor table. Software Requirements The reference design software installed on computer number 1.

  945GCT M2 1333 DRIVER

The reference design includes a Linux and Windows liinux software driver that sets up the DMA transfer. Does anyone any idea where I can found some source?

The application prints out the commands available to specify the DMA traffic you want to run.

I would recommend purchasing the book if you pcif on doing much kernel module development. The theoretical maximum throughput is calculated using the following formula:. The host uses this port to program the descriptor controller.

Very little of that communication involves the device-driver, actually. I typically only use very tiny processors to handle tasks that aren’t time critical and would otherwise consume a lot of LUTs implemented in HDL when I need to do so. To run the DMA application, type. Jay Hirata 31 2.

Copy that and make any necessary mods.
